The Architecture of Maks Fabiani-Pictures
Dates:25/03/2015-14/09/2015

Some of the finest Ljubljana works by the renowned Art Nouveau architect Maks Fabiani are presented in an open-air photographic exhibition by Miran Kambič, which marks the 150th anniversary of Fabiani's birth.

Maks Fabiani was one of the most important architects in Central Europe at the turn of the 20th century. In all periods of his career he remained faithful to Art Nouveau's underlying intention of making connections between art and everyday life.

For Fabiani, every building design project was also an urban development project involving a wider whole. This is particularly true of his Ljubljana works, practically all of which have their foundations in the large-scale urban plan for the redevelopment of Ljubljana after the earthquake of 1895, proposed by Fabiani on his own initiative the same year.

The photographer Miran Kambič (born 1965) has for many years been well-known for his work in the field of architectural photography. He is a regular contributor to Slovenian and international architectural magazines. His photographs have appeared in numerous books and catalogues and have been widely exhibited.

Ljubljana
Maks Fabiani: A monarchy’s architect - overview
Dates:26/03/2015-28/06/2015

This major exhibition in celebration of the 150th birth anniversary of the famous Art Nouveau architect Maks Fabiani gives an overview of the architect's oeuvre and presents the works he created in Vienna, Ljubljana, and Trieste.

Maks Fabiani (1865–1962) was a collaborator of the Viennese architect Otto Wagner and one of the originators of the Viennese Secession. After the devastating Ljubljana earthquake of 1895, he created a new conceptual solution for the urban redevelopment of Ljubljana, which later provided a basis for the famous architect Jože Plečnik to develop his own vision of the city.

In Vienna, Fabiani designed three palatial buildings that were considered to be among the most famous architectural works of the early 20th century, the best-known being the Urania, a magnificent multipurpose building with an observatory built between 1909 and 1910. In Italy, Fabiani designed the National Halls (Narodni dom) in Trieste and the House of Trade (Trgovski dom) in Gorizia, both cultural and business centres used by the local Slovenian community.

Boston
Hokusai
Dates:05/04/2015-09/08/2015

Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) was the first Japanese artist to be internationally recognized, and he continues to inspire artists around the world. As the home of the largest and finest collection of Japanese art outside Japan—including the greatest variety of Hokusai works in any museum—the MFA is uniquely positioned to offer a comprehensive exhibition of this remarkable artist. Drawing from extensive holdings of paintings, woodblock prints, and illustrated printed books, the Museum will showcase an array of works from Hokusai’s seven-decade career, including lesser-known pieces depicting whimsical instructions on how to draw, dynamic paintings on paper lanterns, and elaborate cut-out dioramas. Also displayed are some of the most famous images in Japanese art, including Under the Wave Off Kanagawa (Great Wave) (about 1830–31)—from the legendary series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji—and the brilliantly colored multi-panel screen painting Phoenix (1835). Spanning Hokusai’s work from his 20s through his 80s, the exhibition will explore common themes through sections dedicated to topics such as landscapes, nature, fantasy, and the “Floating World” of urban culture (including depictions of the Kabuki theater and the Yoshiwara pleasure district). Works that depict Japanese historical and literary motifs will be featured along with “perspective prints” with exaggerated vanishing points, often used in toy peep shows. An extremely delicate silk square of a mythological Chinese lion, likely used as a gift wrapper (fukusa), will also be included, in a rare public display of the fragile work. An illustrated publication will accompany the exhibition.

PARIS
Trésors de Sable et de Feu, Verre et Cristal aux Arts Décoratifs, XIVe-XXIe siècle
Dates:09/04/2015-15/11/2015

L’exposition est la première grande rétrospective dédiée à une histoire du verre depuis « L’Art du Verre » organisée aux Arts Décoratifs en 1951. Le caractère international de ce projet va de pair avec une attention particulière accordée aux verriers français, en offrant certains regards croisés sur les productions anciennes et contemporaines. Les objets, ornementaux ou utilitaires, et les œuvres d’art sont inscrits dans une trame chronologique qui rythme le parcours du visiteur sur les deux étages. Les pièces exposées illustrent les goûts des collectionneurs qui ont activement enrichi le fonds de l’institution, ainsi que les acquisitions importantes de verres faites depuis le XIXe siècle.

Des originaux arabo-musulmans, comme les verres émaillés mamelouks sont confrontés aux créations de Philippe J. Brocard à Paris ou de la firme Lobmeyr à Vienne et côtoient des verres chinois de la dynastie Qing qui fascinèrent émile Gallé. Le visiteur découvre l’histoire du verre européen du XVIe au XVIIIe grâce aux dons et legs de collectionneurs passionnés comme Patrice Salin, Madeleine Bougenaux, François Carnot et Madame Fernand Bernard. La création de manufactures modernes au début du XIXe siècle, participe à l’émergence d’une véritable verrerie et cristallerie de luxe en France, comme celle de Baccarat. Les « cristaux opales » ou « opalines », sont l’originalité la plus grande de cette production française et un point fort de la collection.

Les Arts Décoratifs contribuent à l’éclosion et à la diffusion d’un art nouveau et, jusqu’en 1914, rassemblent un splendide ensemble d’œuvres, dont celles d’Emile Gallé, de René Lalique et de François-Eugène Rousseau. 
Cette politique active d’enrichissements est cependant très ralentie après la Première Guerre Mondiale mais des acquisitions spectaculaires viennent enrichir le musée, comme le legs de Monsieur et Madame Barthou, grands amateurs des verriers Maurice Marinot et François Décorchemont.

Une des salles du niveau supérieur est dédiée à l’histoire du verre à boire de 1900 à nos jours. Les autres espaces de l’étage sont consacrés aux oeuvres françaises et internationales des quarante dernières années. Cette période correspond aussi à l’émergence de nouveaux organismes spécialisés. La fondation du centre du verre aux Arts Décoratifs en 1982, et les rencontres internationales du musée du verre de Sars Poterie, sont révélateurs de cette nouvelle dynamique. L’exposition met ainsi en lumière les générations d’artistes ayant transformé l’approche du verre depuis les années 1960 mais aussi une génération récente d’artistes talentueux. Le visiteur découvre ou revoit alors des œuvres de Stanislav Libensky, Jaroslava Brychtova, Bertil Valien, Richard Meitner, Bernard Dejonghe, Toots Zynsky, Alessandro et Laura de Santillana, Gaetano Pesce, Ettore Sottsass et de plus jeunes comme Damien François, Vanessa Mitrani et Martin Hlubucek. Le Centre International de Recherche sur le Verre et les Arts Plastiques de Marseille, et le Centre International d’Art Verrier de Meisenthal, deux institutions impliquées dans la création contemporaine, sont les invités du musée. Représentés par des réalisations récentes de Philippe Parreno (CIRVA), Michel Paysant (CIAV), ou encore David Dubois (CIAV et CIRVA). Histoire et actualité du verre, histoire du goût, histoire d’une collection, l’exposition éclaire toutes les facettes de ce matériau étonnant qui prend toutes les formes et toutes les couleurs.

Ljubljana
Fabiani’s legacy in Ljubljana
Dates:22/04/2015-30/09/2015

Maks Fabiani, whose 150th birth anniversary is celebrated in Ljubljana this year, was a renowned member of the Austrian Art Nouveau movement, known as the Viennese Secession. He was also the architect whose conceptual solution for the urban development of Ljubljana was later built upon by Jože Plečnik.

Fabiani left a significant legacy in a number of European cities, but the most profound was definitely the mark he left on Ljubljana as after the Ljubljana earthquake of 1895 he developed, on his own initiative and free of charge, a large-scale urban plan for the city.

Supported by Ljubljana's progressive mayor Ivan Hribar, Fabiani prepared not only the regulatory plan for the redevelopment of Ljubljana, but also architectural plans for a large number of modern new buildings. Today, the central point of his Art Nouveau Ljubljana is considered to be the Miklošič Park area, completed in 1908 and originally named Slovenian Square.
